Juvenile Crime Prevention Council Offers Funding Opportunity for Youth Programs

The Harnett County Juvenile Crime Prevention Council (JCPC) is now accepting proposals for fiscal year 2019-2020. 

The JCPC’s Mission is to address the gaps in youth service by promoting prevention, intervention, treatment and aftercare strategies, which strengthen families and community safety. The Harnett County JCPC has been awarded additional monies due to the upcoming implementation of the Juvenile Justice Reinvestment Act, or “raise the age”. Starting December 1, 2019, youth ages 16-17 will no longer be charged as adults.    

If you have a program serving youth, or are currently seeking funding to start a program to help serve this youth aged 16-17, the Harnett County Juvenile Crime Prevention Council (JCPC) announces the anticipated availability of $54,884 in intervention and prevention funds for youth that are most at risk of court involvement. Such programs will serve delinquent and at-risk youth for the state fiscal year 2019-2020 beginning on, or after, January 1, 2020. The use of DPS funds in this county does not require a local match.

The Harnett County Board of Commissioners approved a resolution supporting the Juvenile Crime Prevention Council Allocation Expansion on October 7, 2019.

The JCPC Council is comprised of various private and State agencies. Meetings are held monthly at the Harnett County Cooperative Extension office, and the public is welcome to attend.
